Within this page, you have access to all the ideas and automations that have been shared. To make the review process easier, the following lists have been set up:
- All: a list containing all the ideas and automations in all phases and statuses.
- Review: a list containing the ideas and automations waiting to be reviewed:
- All ideas in Idea or Assessment phase with any status;
- All automations in Business Review or Technical review phase.

The information available in the Automation Pipeline’s 5 views (All, Review, Decision Pipeline, Implementation, and Live) can be accessed by the users based on their account assigned permissions. Please check the Roles with Access to the Automation Pipeline section for details.
Apart from the Decision Pipeline, all the other view can be customized as follows:
- Show/Hide certain columns;
- Sort the ideas you want to view;
- Search for a particular idea.
The search is performed in the Automation Name, Auto-generated ID, Automation ID, and in the Description of each idea and automation.
For each idea and automation, you have a set of Actions available. To access it, click the three-dotted icon corresponding to the idea or automation you are interested in.
The information from the Est. Benefit (Hours) can be filtered using the following options related to the ease of implementation percentage computed based on the Assessment Algorithm:
- Easy to implement (highlighted with green): ease of implementation percentage is between 65% (including) and 100% (including).
- Medium difficulty ((highlighted with yellow): ease of implementation percentage is between 35% (including) and 65% (excluding).
- Difficult to implement ((highlighted with red): ease of implementation percentage is between 0% (including) and 35% (excluding).
The flash icon is displayed for ideas shared through the CoE driven flow.
The exclamation mark icon is displayed for one of the below cases:
- Unassigned Process Owner
In this case, the Idea Approver or Program Manager need to open the idea Quick View page, click the Process Owner field, and select from the drop-down list a suitable user to be assigned as Process Owner of that particular idea. Once the user selected, click Assign.
- Idea score is an exception
In this case, the Idea Approver or Program Manager needs to access the Idea profile page and review the entered information.
For all the lists, you have the following options:
Use the Save View option to save one or more custom views for any views available in the Automation Pipeline or even save additional changes to an existing custom view. You can customize the visible columns, reorder columns, use the sorting options, filters, and change the number of items displayed.
Load a view option, available only after a custom view is saved, lets you load one of the saved custom views so that you can return faster to a view that is useful for reporting or other purposes.
Within the Load a view dropdown, you can Reset view to default, rename or delete a custom saved view by using the three dots menu.
Newly added columns from the Columns dropdown are always added at the end of the table. You can hover on a column title and drag and drop to reposition it.
To create a custom view, you can apply any of the following customization criteria:
- a Search option that can be used to easily find an automation or idea,
- a Sort option that allows you to view specific automations or ideas defined by the selected filtering criteria,
- the option to Show/Hide certain columns from the table,
- reorder displayed columns.
Depending on your role, we suggest you apply the following filters in order to make the review easier:
- Idea Approvers should filter by Idea Phase and Awaiting Review Status the All and Review views.
- Business Reviewers should filter by Business Review Phase and Awaiting Review Status the All and Review views.
- Technical Reviewers should filter by Technical Review Phase and Awaiting Review Status the All and Review views.
- Citizen Developer Power Users should filter by Development Phase and Not Started Status the All and Implementation views.
